Artist's Statement

My photographs explore the socio-political relationships between the self and others. Although the politics of voyeurism and tourism come into play, as a former classical dancer I am aware of the politics of objectification. Not quite street photography or visual anthropology, my work explores how self-representation impacts our values and beliefs: in effect, our social contract.
